LimbicCircus on Copy that, Copycat!

NoSoyYucateco Okay this is a better idea of what I'm thinking. If there are any suggestions you mentioned that I didn't address. my apologies. It's been a long week haha. I need to cut 8 cards. That being said, I am concerned about my removal, draw, ramp balance. And if possible, I'd like to try and work in any combination of Woodfall Primus, Brutalizer Exarch, and Avenger of Zendikar. Right now, I have Seedborn Muse in there and wanted to get your opinion on it. My thought was to get multiple uses out of Mimic Vat and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in a single turn cycle, but now that I'm thinking about it, that might not be such a good use of a slot. Mirrorwing Dragon is in there, but I might sideboard it. It just seemed like a neat idea to target it with Cackling Counterpart or Twinflame, lol.

Here are some ideas!

Creatures I would add: Thassa, Deep-Dwelling (She will probably be cheaper when she rotates out of Standard, but she's a natural fit for the deck).

Purphoros, God of the Forge (This card won me so many games with my Riku creatures deck)

Avenger of Zendikar (Also a win con)

Solemn Simulacrum (For repeatable ramp and the bonus draw)

Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw. Even if if you copy and her and sacrifice one she's great)

Mystic Snake (You don't really have counters here. This one costs a lot of mana but it has recursion potential, especially if you add things like Cackling Counterpart)

Woodfall Primus or Brutalizer Exarch are both great.

For instants and sorceries, I would cut your extra turn stuff if it is causing issues with your play group. The untap stuff like Early Harvest can be a stand-in for these, as they practically do the same thing but aren't technically extra turns. Nevertheless they can bother people.

Epic Experiment is hit or miss even in a deck with a lot more instants and sorceries. If you're going for more creatures, this should definitely be cut.

Primal Command might not make the cut (personally, if you want to combo off with creatures, I would pick Shared Summons over this anyway.)

Clone Legion costs a lot and is not consistent. I love this card, but for 9 mana, I want to win the game with some degree of certainty.

Brass's Bounty can probably go. You should be able to ramp in other ways, and this isn't an artifact deck.

I would also swap Explosive Vegetation for Migration Path, because it's strictly better. But personally I would make sure I have Rampant Growth in here before this.

As for Spitting Image, it's fine, but it is going to be on the high end of your ideal mana curve. I'd put in some cheaper clone effects first.

Let me know what you think. It might be time do a revision to the deck and see how things are looking, to get a clearer picture of the direction it's going and what it still needs.

What do you think about swapping Praetor's Counsel for Mizzix's Mastery? I find that I usually don't need all of the cards in my graveyard, and 8 mana often takes up an entire turn to cast.

I am also a big fan of Early Harvest and Summer Bloom with Riku, if you want to lean more heavily on the instants and sorceries. He is so mana hungry, so playing extra lands and getting some extra untaps can make a huge difference.

If you want to go more towards creatures, think about Flameshadow Conjuring. It's great. You can also consider more instants/sorceries like Twinflame and Cackling Counterpart to bank some more ETBs.

I wasn't a huge fan of Progenitor Mimic in my deck. It costs a lot for a clone and it often doesn't get you any token copies. Clever Impersonator might be more versatile.

Trying Cackling Counterpart over Phyrexian Metamorph -- while the ability to copy opponents' things and clone artifacts seemed really good, it never was quite as useful as I'd hoped when I drew it. Cackling Counterpart will let me have Vadrok clone herself on mutation (remember that all mutated characteristics are copiable values), and also let me copy her in response to a removal spell. We'll see how it works in practice!
